This is the time of year when I really look forward to one special day. Not Christmas – no, the day I look forward to is December 21, winter solstice. For me, this is one of the most exciting, uplifting days of the year because I know that it will be the shortest day (as determined by amount of daylight) for another 365 days! Just thinking about waking up to daylight and evening walks after work makes me feel merry. Luckily Christmas falls right after so I can us my extra solstice cheer to augment anything missing from my holiday mood. All this is a long way of saying I apologize for the quality of these photos. There has just been no good light to shoot with this week!
The base for this design is Orly White on White. The dots were done free hand with Zoya Blaze, an amazing holographic red from the same 2012 Zoya collection that gave us Storm, Aurora, and Ziv. you can tell that I had some problems with bleed when I top coated this design. I waited about 5 minutes after applying the dots to top coat and I probably should have waited closer to 15-20.
I start my new job on Monday so stay tuned for my first-week-at-work nails coming soon.
Thanks for stopping by!
